COLORFUL FALL APPLE DOT ART FOR KIDS
Georges Seurat was a famous French painter born in 1859. He was born into a wealthy family, so he was able to spend his life as an artist without having to worry about finances. He originally followed a traditional path in the art world, but then began to create pieces using a new art technique later called ‘pointillism’.
